SOJ:

There is a lawsuit working its’ way through the courts related to due process for the State of Jefferson. It appears that they are getting their way on some preliminary motions. This is good news for that long shot effort.

Nothing grassroots is without controversy. It appears there is an offshoot of SOJ, called CCR. They are having their own meetings and are basically bad-mouthing the SOJ side of things. It is too bad there is not unity in the SOJ effort.

BTW – any rumors of Steven Baird and Terry Rapoza being at odds were also dispelled as I was sent photos of them together at the last SOJ meeting.

As of this time, I remain a supporter of State of Jefferson / SOJ movement.

Prop 14:

I received an email from some former Assembly / Senate Leaders urging delegates to the CAGOP to continue supporting Prop 14, because Prop 14 is costing Labor Unions a ton of money in elections. Mind you, the current Assembly Minority Leader is a tyrant that most in the rank-and-file GOP dislike… so invoking leaders may not have been a wise strategy. Secondly, one such leader invoked was George Plescia. Mr. Plescia lives in Arizona and has for several years, meaning he’s never been in CA for a Prop-14 affected election.

Why people think having no GOP candidates on the fall ballot for statewide offices is a good thing is beyond me. Maybe they all supported the Cap and Trade disaster too? I am befuddled by the logic.

World-famous #NEVERTRUMPER Ron Nehring, who will lead the #NEVERTRUMP effort in 2020 in California responded with an email of his own decimating the argument of the first email. Hopefully that means there will be a floor fight at the CAGOP convention, confusion and those who have spent tons of money trying to control the CAGOP have the same feelings they had when a ton of people went rogue on Chad Mayes. People thinking for themselves is a good thing and we need more of it.

Placer GOP:

I was informed that several tea party / conservative aligned members of the cent com and other volunteers from a similar universe suddenly bailed out on their commitments to work at the Gold Country Fair, leaving the organizers scrambling to find help to fill slots. I am not sure how this helps register Republican voters, elects conservatives and the like. What do I know? I am just an attack blogger.

While I take turns taking shots at people who deserve them, I also try to provide balance. In this case, the legislative staffers on the Placer GOP Cent Com did the right thing by helping with the effort at the Gold Country Fair.

There is a lot of residual bad blood, however related to the 2012 and 2016 efforts to spend a ton of money on the outcome of the Placer GOP Cent Com race. As I have written before, said efforts were directed by Senator Jim Nielsen’s Chief of Staff (please note while working as an independent consultant outside of his duties in the State Senate) David Stafford Reade. People like Landon Wolf and others that work for legislators end up bearing the brunt of the ill will from said effort due to their proximity to folks like Reade and others that earn large amounts of consulting fees for their participation in these efforts. It is what it is.

Given that most of those staffers have never met me, yet glare at me from across the room, (think about what Reade and others may have told them about this meanie blogger or others on the opposite side of them) I can’t say that I 100% disagree with the “resistance” on the Placer GOP Cent Com. Legislative staff are rarely activists and are never independent. It is simply impossible.

That said, I expect to be endorsing many of the “resistance” all over the state and attempting to help them simply because the amount of money being spent to control the state party (and subsequently shrink it, to make it easier to control) is dead wrong. After seeing how difficult the drill against Chad Mayes was to run, I’ve drawn the conclusion that there needs to be a house-cleaning of party leadership with a few exceptions.

OC GOP:

There is an event featuring Mike Pence tomorrow in Beverly Hills to raise gobs of money for targeted GOP Congressmembers. I hope it goes well, as I have heard mixed reports about the interest level in it. I’ve also heard that most of the CAGOP Congressional Delegation have convinced themselves that the sky is falling and they are all going to be hunted down. I seriously doubt any seats change hands until the next sham citizens redistricting commission meets and draws the GOP in to oblivion.

Tyler Diep, one of my newly minted favorite tackle dummies, had an event last night in Orange County. A lot of luminaries were there. It was his kick-off as young Tyler is expecting a coronation. I intend to help inform people that Tyler is a disaster, at least that is what I think of him, and when I am done many others will also.

There is a neat aside out of this is the angling and posturing to replace Dana Rohrabacher. It has been put to this blogger that one or more recognizable names in OC were being rather chummy with some of OC’s favorite liberals. Further, some of them appear to be just fine with the concept of Rohrabacher being unseated by a democrat in order to open up the seat. When I have on the record sources, I will name names and their actions publicly in hopes that the OC GOP Establishment continue shedding their fealty to incumbents in favor of doing the right thing.

I think it is safe to assume that those conspiring to help elect a democrat over Rohrabacher were part of the thousands of #NEVERTRUMP nimrods that helped Hitlary win the OC by a significant margin in 2016. They should just get out of the GOP now, and join Chad Mayes in a leper colony.

Speaking of Chad Mayes:

Mr Mayes has raked in a ton of PAC Money. We like to refer to this is his 30 pieces of silver. Be sure to scroll pages in the link so you understand why Mr. Mayes delusions of perfection run so deep.

It is indeed clear that Mayes believes he is bullet-proof for re-election as he can call his PAC Donor Masters and cash in for his behavior.

Mayes has been on a Narcissistic Rage on his way out the door. It has become clear to this blogger that in addition to stripping opponents of their committee assignments and offices, he has also been on a rampage against donors to the California Republican Party. The goal is to punish the disloyal, because he is right and they are all wrong. This is the behavior of a tyrant and a narcissist.

His grotesque arrogance was on display at the CAGOP board meeting this past weekend. Multiple accounts indicate that Mayes was boastfully telling the board that the party would raise no more than $200k a year. It was also clear to those paying attention that he was the cause.

Because the Assembly Repubicans lacked the courage to vacate the chair, they are all left with the consequences as the Narcissist is meeting out revenge on everyone. This sort of failure to lead is what gave these very people who despise President Trump, President Trump.

Speaking of Narcissists and #NEVERTRUMPERS , Kristen Olsen – who like Chad Mayes has never acknowledged anything she has done wrong and like Chad Mayes is incapable of seeing her own faults – has made it clear she is staying on as Vice Chair of the California Republican Party. She ran the meeting on Saturday during a couple periods of Jim Brulte’s absence. She has also appeared at at least one county party event and people in Stanislaus County have told me that she brazenly has gone back to her church seemingly immune to the Church’s desire to see her leave or anything regarding her affair with Mayes and its’ effect on the community there. This is the classic behavior of Narcissism, something people screamed about with Obama for years.

In case you have not had enough drama and bad news, the Democrats are already busy screwing business in the wake of Chad Mayes’ Cap and Trade Deal. (Remember, it is all about him so he can own it every time stuff like this happens.)

According to the Sacramento BS, the democrats chose the labor unions over left-wing poster child company Tesla. This is a repudiation of everything Chad told us about the “deal” done related to Cap and Trade. This bill is designed to force Tesla to unionize, the exact sort of anti-business crap Chad Mayes told us his sell-out would prevent. The Narcissist was wrong, lied or did both.

My summary on facebook of this was as follows:

#1 Tesla gets screwed (see also Elon Musk, a left-wing Trump hater) #2 Chad Mayes looks like an even bigger idiot/narcissist than he already is as this validates the criticisms of us little people against “His Deal” (because, remember, it is all about him). #3 Labor Unions > Environment in the Dem Party – confirming who their daddy is.

These updates will continue as events warrant.

Aug 102017
 

I just got a political nuclear device delivered to my inbox.

The Placer GOP, by a vote of 37-0 (3 ABS) unanimously censured the 8 #CAPANDTRAITORS and called on Chad Mayes to resign.

There is significance to all of this. This is the first GOP Committee to light up ALL the #CAPANDTRAITORS. The previous 10 committees had focused on the philanderer only.

The fact that the vote was 37-0 means that Senator Jim Nielsen, in particular is on board with this as some of his staff are on the Central Committee. (BTW, one of the Abstentions was Frank Bigelow’s rep. Bigelow supported Cap and Trade but voted no on the floor)

Before I explain further the machinations – let’s look at the letter. It is incendiary.

This is the most strongly worded letter from any GOP Central Committee yet and will likely result in Media Calls to Placer GOP Chairman Dennis Revell, who is also a Public Relations executive by trade.

The part that resonated with me is the references to Ronald Reagan. Revell was a son-in-law to Ronald Reagan.

While this is not the censure resolution against the 8 Republicans that actually voted yes, that will follow and will be posted when I have received a copy of it.

Back to the machinations.

There are staff of Jim Nielsen and Doug LaMalfa on the Placer GOP Central Committee. Some or all of them had to vote yes. I was of the belief that an attempt by the Placer GOP would fail to reach 2/3. I held my tongue when I was alerted that David Stafford Reade had led the effort to blast Chad Mayes at the Yolo GOP Central Committee.

The connection is this: David Stafford Reade is Jim Nielsen’s Chief of Staff. Reade was also Doug LaMalfa’s Chief of Staff before he went to Congress. Reade has staff loyal to him deployed amongst several GOP Central Comittees all over the north state.

They include Saolo, the chair of Butte, staffers on Sutter, Sacramento, Glenn, Colusa, Tehama and of course Placer. All of those counties are in Jim Nielsen’s Senate District. I’ve written about the money that David Stafford Reade was involved in the deployment of all over the north state to influence the outcome of GOP Central Committee Elections in the North State (actually, 44 counties statewide)…

Yolo is David’s home county. David led the effort there. (Note: I had written that Reade made the motion, that is inaccurate, it was Rob Olsen that made the motion in Yolo)

Now, David’s top lieutenants were involved in yet another County Party lighting up Chad Mayes. I was told that one of Reade’s people spoke out against the resolution against the 7 others and suggested the committee stick with lighting up Mayes only. (implied is that Mayes is the real target)

I wrote before and I will write again that David Stafford Reade wants Joe Justin’s Job. It is a huge pay raise and would make Mr. Reade a kingmaker giving him real power to go with his paper castle in the North of California. Remember, Joe Justin is the chief of staff and strategist for Chad Mayes. While Justin and Reade have been aligned mostly in the past, it was a marriage of paycheck, donor appeasement and convenience. Now that Justin and Mayes are wounded, they are getting the Reade treatment.

I wish I could enjoy the Placer County Republican Party unloading on everyone – but I just can’t see it for what is in the surface. I feel the Earth moving and I have no one to root for.

I sincerely hope the new GOP leader, (and mark my words – Chad Mayes may survive on 8/22 at the Caucus vote… but he will not make it through 2017 as leader) cleans house. We need real conservatives without personal conflicts of interest (ahem, paychecks) clouding the advice they give their members.
